ABOUT HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED

Ways We Help: Salvation Army National Outreach

Many Americans are familiar with The Salvation Army's thrift stores which fund our well-known drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. And our iconic red kettles have become a symbol of the Christmas season and the spirit of giving.

But in hundreds of communities across the Western United States, The Salvation Army also operates programs and services which are designed to meet human need in Christ's name, alleviate human suffering, and promote wholeness by addressing the spiritual, social, emotional, psychological and physical well-being of those served.

The Salvation Army's social service programs vary slightly with local and regional needs. For instance, there are programs and services for homeless people, victims of domestic violence, at-risk kids, and so much more.

  • Modesto Citadel Homeless Shelter

    As long as there's The Salvation Army, there's no such thing as 'no place to go.' The Salvation Army provides safe shelter to nearly 30,000 people every night through a variety of programs.

    Our group homes, emergency shelters and transitional living centers provide housing, food and overnight lodging for varying amounts of time to destitute families, the homeless, the displaced and to youth where family care is undesirable or unavailable. In addition, we supplement every shelter service with emotional and spiritual support.

    Call 209.522.3209 to inquire about the Modesto Homeless Shelter. Learn more at modestocitadel.salvationarmy.org.

  • Modesto Food Assistance

    Food Pantry

    Modesto's Salvation Army Food Distribution Warehouse provides more than 3.5 million pounds of food to more than 50 different churches, organizations and agencies throughout Stanislaus County. By offering access to free, fresh produce and canned goods, we provide valuable meal supplementation while helping those in need maintain their independence and dignity.

    Meal Programs

    The Salvation Army in Modesto serves more than 200,000 meals every single year. From sit-down meals that provide nutritious food and valuable human interaction, to mobile meals that deliver much-needed sustenance to those who cannot reach a food distribution center, we ensure that the most vulnerable members of society do not go hungry.

    Call 209.522.3209 to inquire about our food pantry program or other services that may be available to you. Learn more at modestocitadel.salvationarmy.org.

  • Modesto Child Development Center

    The Salvation Army Modesto's Child Development Center prepares kid's for lifelong learning. Our programs are designed to foster exploration, independence and creativity.

    Kindergarten Readiness Program

    This program is offered from 8-11am or 2-5pm, Monday–Friday, following the traditional school calendar and is designed to prepare children for kindergarten. Hands-on, multi-sensory activities, and group activities are designed to develop the whole child.

    Daily Childcare

    This general childcare program accepts children who are 3 to 6 years of age by December 2 of the school year and are self-sufficient with toileting.

    Hours, Fees and Location

    We are open from 6:45am–5:30pm, Monday–Friday. All children must be picked up by 5:30pm or a per minute late fee will be charged. We provide breakfast, snacks and lunch for all children. A daily schedule of activities is posted in each classroom.

    The Salvation Army Child Development Center is funded through the California Department of Education. Because of this, fees are determined based on income eligibility.

  • Stockton Adult Rehabilitation Center

    Each year at our Stockton ARC, 100+ men successfully overcome alcohol and drug dependence.

    The Salvation Army equips nearly 150,000 people annually across the United States to overcome alcohol and drug dependence. The Salvation Army's drug and alcohol programs are social model, work therapy programs. That means that we don't "treat" addictions with more drugs.

    Instead, we train men and women in Stockton to live without drugs and alcohol through a 6-month, residential program that helps them learn about themselves, their addictions - and the God who made them and wants to set them free.

    Holistic work-therapy, combined with group and individual counseling, 12-step programs, spiritual direction, and life skills development, helps residents learn to live victoriously without drugs and alcohol. We think that's a pretty powerful combination.

    Call 209.466.3871 or visit stocktonarc.salvationarmy.org to inquire about the Stockton Adult Rehabilitation Center.
